Admittedly, I don’t use tofu in a lot of my cooking. It’s not that I don’t like tofu (mmm … miso soup), it’s that for whatever reason it’s not top of mind when I’m hustling through the grocery store for my bi-weekly haul.

So, I was excited when Nasoya sent me a note recently about giving their new Chipotle TofuBaked a whirl. They’re looking for folks to come up with fun and delicious recipes for their Big Game recipe challenge.

I agreed, because chipotleyum!and because C H A L L E N G E.

Hahaha.

I went back and forth about whether or not to incorporate meat into the recipe. Just because tofu’s typically used in vegetarian dishes doesn’t mean the recipe has to be vegetarian, right?

I mean, bacon-wrapped Chipotle TofuBaked sounds kinda awesome.

But I decided to flex my vegetarian muscles anyway, and instead I came up with a fun game day recipe that I believe omnivores and vegetarians alike will love.

The smoky sweet (and very-slightly spicy) flavor of Chipotle TofuBaked was subtle enough to not take over the combo, but packed enough of a punch that even after finishing a wrap, the taste lingered in my mouth—in a good, mouthwatering way.

And combined with lots of fresh ingredients, including sliced creamy avocado and a lemony sour cream sauce, it’s hard not to devour a plateful in minutes.

Not that there’d be anything wrong with that, except your guests might be a little annoyed.

Pro tip: while you can heat up the Chipotle TofuBaked, it tastes perfectly fine at room temp, or even chilled!

So, I didn’t even bother heating it up for this recipe—who wants to bother with managing proper temps during game day, right?
